Wordcloud Custom Visualization : Stanza errors

Lucas_K

This app seems to add lots of invalid stanzas to all user configurations.

ie. Invalid key in stanza [blah] in /opt/splunk/etc/apps/blah/local/savedsearches.conf, line 953: display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.useColors (value: 1).
Invalid key in stanza [blah] in /opt/splunk/etc/apps/blah/local/savedsearches.conf, line 967: display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.splunkTastic (value: 0).
Invalid key in stanza [blah] in /opt/splunk/etc/apps/blah/local/savedsearches.conf, line 968: display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.useColors (value: 1).
Invalid key in stanza [blah] in /opt/splunk/etc/apps/blah/local/savedsearches.conf, line 1051: display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.splunkTastic (value: 0).
Invalid key in stanza [blah] in /opt/splunk/etc/apps/blah/local/savedsearches.conf, line 1052: display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.useColors (value: 1).

There are thousands of these invalid stanzas as it infects every user and every app.

Hey, I had the same issue and followed @SK8 's suggestion. It works. Here is what I did:
1. created /opt/splunk/etc/apps/wordcloud_app/README/savedsearches.conf.spec
2. entered below contents:
[]
display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.useColors =
display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.alignmentMode =
display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.backgroundColor =
display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.colorBy =
display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.colorMode =
display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.numOfBins =
display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.minColor =
display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.maxColor =
display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.splunkTastic =
3. restart splunk

We had to uninstall the app long prior to that answer.

@Lucas K , did you refer to the Tag Cloud examples in Splunk 6.x Dashboard Examples App? Are you using Tag Cloud visualization at all? If you are what is the alternative you used?

The app miss the README/savedsearches.conf.spec file.
- add the "README" directory in the main directory of the app ($SPLUNK_HOME$/etc/apps/wordcloud_app/README)
- add file savedsearches.conf.spec with following contens:

Declare properties here

display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.useColors =
display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.alignmentMode =
display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.backgroundColor =
display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.colorBy =
display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.colorMode =
display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.numOfBins =
display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.minColor =
display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.maxColor =
display.visualizations.custom.wordcloud_app.wordcloud.splunkTastic =

so nothing?

I'll have to uninstall as this app as it still throws thousands of errors making troubleshooting startup impossible.
